... beautiful views of the canyon.
Once we got through Grand Canyon Park however, we went through nearly 350 miles of 2 lane highway, passing through the Navajo Reservation and the Apache Reservation. Now I could probably write book on why we didn't see anything for these 350 miles save roadside "Native American Art Stands" and I might, but for now let me say it was desolate in the extreme.

Much warmer, needed air-conditioning on. ...
